CompTIA Launches CertMaster Online Learning Solution

Association introduces online learning tool to prepare learners for IT certifications and careers. By ChannelPro

CompTIA has launched the CompTIA CertMaster, an online learning solution designed to help students and professionals learn and retain technical information more effectively, better preparing them for IT certification exams and future IT careers.

CompTIA CertMaster is a learning solution with foundations in brain science and research in neurobiology, cognitive psychology, and game studies. The software combines key principles from each field to help users learn necessary information quickly and retain it long-term.

“In traditional online learning models, it’s typically a race to the finish,” says Terry Erdle, executive vice president, skills certification, and learning, CompTIA.  “CertMaster’s adaptive learning technology encourages users to master – not just memorize – the material before completing the curriculum.”

Designed for both consumer use and application in schools, businesses, and government agencies, the CompTIA CertMaster platform helps learners to:

  • Quickly master the information they need to learn
  • Recall information when it counts, including at school, in certification exams, and on the job
  • Perform with confidence

“We’re seeing a rising demand in the public and private sectors for professional development that furthers employees’ collective knowledge and combats the IT skills gap,” says Erdle. “With CompTIA CertMaster, learners get a firm grasp on the critical knowledge required to pursue a range of professional opportunities, and add value to their current organizations.”

CompTIA CertMaster will be available to the public in June 2014 with learning solutions for CompTIA A+, CompTIA Security+, CompTIA Network+, and Strata IT Fundamentals. Learners will be able to access the CompTIA CertMaster from a browser and on mobile devices through iOS and Android apps. For more details about CompTIA CertMaster, visit
